The Hunt

I have to say that I forgot how much I hate job hunting.

I think 90% of the reason I hate it is because I see all of these expectations that employers put out and they’re all looking for this energetic, sharp, quick, witty, funny, personable, beautiful, wizened, youthful, person who I just, am not. I can be some of those things some of the time, but I am never as fast as they want me to be, I am never as well versed in every program they expect me to know, and I never feel qualified to actually hit “apply” for anyone.

I mean, I’m no slouch. I have 2 years experience running an online news team, I’ve been in honor societies, and sororities, and graduated twice with high honors. I have a GPA of 3.94 for crying out loud, but I’m just not their level of good.

I’m not their level of engaged and committed to the type of person they want to be around for 8 hours every day for the next 50 some odd years. I suppose that’s why school is more comfortable than work. At work, you’re committed, and you’re performing for 8 hours of the day. You have to be sociable and kind and on top of it.

At school, you just have to learn. Sit your butt in a seat and learn. That’s a lot easier.

From your experience, which is easier for you? School or work? Why?
